KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) - Kingsport Police are looking for an armed robber who used a broomstick to assault a clerk.

Patton said the suspect also stole jewelry.

The suspect came in the store and said he had a gun.   When the clerk indicated he didn't believe that was true, the suspect grabbed the stick and started swinging.

The clerk received minor injuries, police said.
